The mother of Coronation Street
star Jack P Shepherd’s son has urged the actor to acknowledge their child, or risk regretting it forever.
Sammy Milewski gave birth to little Greyson James after a one-night stand with Shepherd in 2010. The actor, who plays David Platt in the soap, was in a relationship with his now fiancée, Lauren Shippy, at the time.
Greyson, who is now three-years-old, was born with an incurable genetic disorder called alternating hemiplegia. The condition, which paralyses parts of the body, leaving the sufferer in intense pain.
Ms Milewski has previously spoken out to criticise Shepherd for not being present in his son’s life, and has now urged him to do so, saying that he will regret it otherwise.
Speaking to The Sunday People this weekend, 29-year-old Sammy said: “To Greyson, his biological father is just another man on TV.”
“Nobody knows what the future holds for any child, disabled or not. Anything could happen and one day, he might regret not meeting him,” she added.
